    Prayers for peace. I hope they have a quick recovery, physically and emotionally, it must have been absolutely horrifying. I’m done with politics, stay outta my space and my yard!

    • Gerri65 says:

      What does politics have to do with a shooting? Praying the two people shot last evening will fully recover, and if you know something say something

      • Smoke & Mirrors says:

        When politicians claim to have the answers, blame the other guys and say they are going to fix the problem, the voters trust and believe them. So, when they don’t deliver on their promises, you get these kind of comments. Didn’t anyone knock on your door last election?

    Full moon madness!

    Prayers don’t work.

    • C Taylor-Dill says:

      Yes, prayers do work. I am witness to that. May I ask what you are praying for? And to whom you are praying to?

      • Gaz says:

        They may help you reflect or find inner peace. But they don’t actually work. There is no God,
        jesus etc – you do all know that, right? C’mon, tell me none of you actually believe it?

      • Paz says:

        The problem in a faith based system as opposed to a scientific/fact based system is nothing can be logically proven. Just because you see something change after you pray does not mean that prayer did anything at all to bring about that outcome. There is simply no way to conclusively prove that prayer works. There have been eons of sincere prayers that are most probably doing absolutely nothing. And why should they? The whole concept has no basis is reality. Only in hope.

        I assume that you have been indoctrinated into this thinking.

      • Paz says:

        In a faith based system, faith and hope are used to ascribe results to certain actions.
        In a fact based system, actions need to analyzed to make a precise determination that those actions actually cause a specific result. Just because something happened after prayer does not mean prayer had anything at all to do with it.

        Our island should be looking beyond our current cultural norms of handling social problems. We will have more success. Especially with young people who can feel very differently about the way the world works.

    • Sickofantz says:

      Your right praying just makes people think they are doing something and therefore they get away with doing nothing! There is no god, but hey no reason to worry about that we have science and reason and all the wonders of the world and a great living passion for progress and humanity.

    Pasta Beans will be leading a prayer group at S. Rangers tomorrow. There’ll be a collection plate passed around – naturally.

    • Arnett says:

      If only Pasta Beans could get these ‘youngsters’ a job. That would fix EVERYTHING right?

  5. Brown says:

    This will never stop, what happen to the old Bermuda.

    • Bermudian Patriot says:

      Organised crime, aka, gangs. When you acted up years ago, ya Moma and Daddy turfed yass out! Now they build a house on your dime, and put you in the top apartment, and manage your drug money. (Well when you move up the Organisation and control the sales of all those dime bags) The New “holistic” approach doesn’t allow interfering with the family trade of narcotics, prostitution, money laundering and gun trafficking. We’re moving away from, “clean sweep”, to John Jay University, who claimed in 2013, there would be gang eradication in one year.. and Pastor Bean who was hired for a year, and told the taxpayers and Minister Caines, his new Boss, that he envisioned himself in the position for five and a half years, before progress would be seen. Who’s foolin who? It’s a BIG money game, and Government have pledged a soft approach, with NO whamees!.. mic drop…

    • C Taylor-Dill says:

      Guns is what happened and a lack of faith and love in Our Creator and each other.

      • Paz says:

        Young people all over the developed world are walking away from traditional religions, their deities and their social pronouncements. They just don’t believe In them. We need new solutions that do not involve old failed methods.

        • Bermudian Patriot says:

          Political violence, can’t done! Pure ghost and phantom, the youth
          Dem get blind by stardom
          Now the Kings Of Kings a call

        • OneLoveForAllHumanity says:

          You just explained the reason behind the decline in humanity right there! Ignorance is bliss and blinding.
          Believe in something or fall for anything. GOD IS LOVE <3 Thou shall not KILL!!!!!!!!

  8. Oh,I see now says:

  9. David says:

      When Trenchtown man stop laugh and block-off traffic

      To see the sufferation sicken me

  11. A Bermudian in Wales says:

    The continuing gun violence in Bermuda is so heart-breaking. The “old Bermuda” I grew up in was certainly not perfect, but I could never have predicted the level of gang activity, violence and murder that we have seen in the past 20 years.

  12. Real Onion says:

    who ya gonna call?
    pasta!

  13. Stevie says:

    Religon has nothing to do with the violence. Its people like Sheelagh Cooper who have screwed our childrens upbringing.
    You can’t give your child a hiding, but the child can beat you up in more ways than one.

    • MB says:

      Stevie, you ever consider the reason they may be violent gang members is cos parents like u screwed them up by being violent, un nurturing, unloving and too busy to parent properly and yes, beating them?????????maybe that’s why the child beats u up…and sheelagh Cooper has to clean up the mess!!!!!

    • OneLoveForAllHumanity says:

      Sorry lame excuse…That did not stop my parents (all four of them) raise us (all 9 of us) and we had plenty of licks along the way (ages 46 – 25yrs old) all law abiding citizens.

      You brought them in this world, your responsibility and their upbringing should not be dictated by someone who never raised their own! ijs

      Take responsibility for your own seed!! They are a reflection of you if you raised them right – they would not want to bring shame to the family, especially their parents. You can tell when a child respects their parents and moreso when they don’t! As we see today! They just don’t care. Stop trying to be your kids friend AND stop being afraid of your own seed.

      Sad times in these Devils Isles! Keeping the Faith regardless that He will prevail over Evil!

  14. Y-Gurl says:

    The cops need get some proper management who will allow them to start breaking doors down and get the guns off the streets, then the shootings will stop

  18. Cat a Nine Tails says:

    If they don’t want to get psychological help which some of them really need because of there home life take the gloves off.Start really harassing these cowards on every block everyday, show up at their girlfriends house to conduct interviews so their parents know who they are dating and hanging out with and most likely hiding their guns and drugs. There are old and young dating these guys put the pressure on them. for the Wankersters Show up at their parent houses ask them if they need a social worker because something must be wrong in there household. The same way police can be Ninja lol when it come to hiding to catch speeders they can do the same thing and track the movements of these bums. They have cost Bermuda to much and stop falling for these weak lines “where agree we don’t have no Jobs” man please stop babying these cancers. And for those that who don’t know what a Chicken (Project Pat) or Wankerster (50 cent) is don’t google go to youtube. These infestation might be in your house weed them out. Parent do your jobs or get help.
